The Pearl Hammer Unboxing & Review

Today we unbox and review the Pearl DE razor called The Hammer. About a week ago I received an email letting me know that this product was on the way to me for a review and today I'm ready to give you my opinion.

Pearl, a well-known name in the world of shaving, has recently launched its new razor called the Hammer. The Hammer is designed to provide a smooth and comfortable shaving experience to its users, while also giving them the flexibility to customize their shave according to their preferences but does it really? Let's take a look at this razor more closely.

St Patrick's Day Shave With The Quiet Man

St Patrick's day just passed so I thought I would do a shave with The Quiet Man which was something I came up with after watching the movie of the same name. Whenever this movie airs I'm always drawn to it. I usually start to sit down and say to myself I'll only watch it for a little while and before you know it I'm watching the whole movie again. So glad we have this movie to watch today because I'm not sure it could be made in today's climate we are in. I'm sure you can find questionable actions from John Wayne all through the movie.

A little bit about the issues of aftershave balms we had tried to reorder our tottles which is the name for the aftershave balm wh bottles we use and they have been out of stock for some time now we needed to move to something different until they are available again there is no ETA on them so we are keeping a close eye on the situation in the meantime we have a substitute.

A Quick Shave with Arko & Contest Info

Sometimes I'm so tired from the day's activities that I realize while I'm lying in bed I didn't shave yet. This happened to me this week so I needed to shave quickly since it was pretty late at night. I reached for Arko Extra Fresh shaving cream. This comes in a toothpaste-like tube and is so easy to dispense just place a little in your hand and massage it into your wet face and presto lather.

Extra Fresh is one of my favorites from Arko the menthol will wake you up and get you going with a morning shave as well and the post-shave feel is fantastic.

Arthur Shelby Bushmills From Wet The Face

Today I'm excited to introduce the third release in our Shelby Shaving Soap series called Arthur Shelby Bushmills. We used the real deal here. This is made with The Bushmills Prohibition Irish Whiskey. We had to create this carefully due to the alcohol content which is not only dangerous but if not done properly could cease the batch rendering it useless. It took over two hours to simmer some of the alcohol down to levels safe for soap making. Once it was done we knew we had something very special. You could just smell the whiskey in the air for days when the batch was drying. It was an amazing experience to finally tackle this project and now it's here for all of you to enjoy.

Shaving & Talking Using Spices From The Sea

One of the most iconic aftershaves on the planet has to be old spice. My dad used it and I just loved sneaking a splash for myself every now and then. My dad once said if you want a girl to remember you find out what the father's aftershave is and wear it on your first date, instant bond. 

The Old Spice products were manufactured by the Shulton Company which was founded in 1934 by William Lightfoot Schultz. The earliest men’s products were dominated by shaving soap and aftershave lotion. Today Proctor & Gamble owns it and after rebranding the logo and introducing deodorant Old Spice is now the No. 1 antiperspirant/deodorant stick and body wash brand in the United States.

For Wet The Face I just didn't want it to smell a little like old spice I wanted it to smell just like old spice and as dupes go I think it's spot on to the classic scent. This took a while to achieve but the result speaks for itself. I would love to make a bar soap next and convert it for use in our aftershave balms as well.

Shaving With Proraso Green

What a busy day last week Sunday was the Superbowl and I was invited to a gathering of people I ride on the train with but before I could go I had to get things done FoodShop, Laundry, Dry Cleaning, Cook for next week so I have something when I come home from work, Pick up a cake so as not to be empty handed when I arrive at the party and see Mary for a few hours. Just a few things but included in this list was also time to shave. I had to make this fast and clean with no time to waste so I thought Proraso Green shaving cream will do the trick.

To speed up the lathering process I also used the biggest brush I had in the den, it's a monster and it did cut down the time it took to make and apply lather. I first placed a little shaving cream in my hand and massaged it into my face next, I placed a little more in the wet brush and began circular motions hitting all the areas of my face and in no time I was done.

Shaving With Into The Mystic

This week I use something that has been around on the Wet The Face website for some time called Into The Mystic. This all came about when I was hired at my current job. This place was an absolute disaster and I'm not only including an outdated infrastructure but the inability to make changes because they didn't understand the technology and were in fear of advancing beyond what they knew. ie this company still had analog phones.

I was assigned to the prior I.T. guy's desk. It was a messy stack of output dating back to the 80s piled high with all sorts of trash and dirt all over the place. it took me months to clean it all up but during this cleanup phase, I found inside his desk a small bottle of Cool Water. This aftershave smells so amazing I decided to try and make a shaving soap of its scent and Into The Mystic was born.
